Taralli


As you can see, I am in my weekend mode…projects that are a bit more elaborative … but soooo tasty. Tonight I will enjoy these crunchy freshly made fennel seed taralli with a glass of Petite Arvine. For about 70-80 taralli you will need: – 400g flour – 2.5 dl […]

Brioche


About a week ago I set myself a challenge: home made brioche….and I am sooooo proud 😊 For sure I will make this a regular for my brunches…but the main ingredient, time, will probably be more of a challenge then during this lockdown period. The ingredients and method are not […]

Erbazzone


Another Italian Easter tradition: after the richness of Easter and in full spring, once the first greens of the year can be harvested, Italians like to bake what they call Erbazzone…erba is grass… an assembly of greens.  It is tasty the day you make it and it is a great […]

Eggplant caponata


And another great receipe from Sicily: eggplant caponata: never did I think that the mise-en-place was as important as during my first on-line cooking class today! What I also learnt is that the eggplant cubes need to be floating in the oli while frying. Put as many cubes as the […]

Torta della nonna


One of the many traditions Italians have for Easter is the Torta della nonna: a shortcrust cake with a dense vanilla cream between the upper and lower dough. Once you have mixed together the shortcrust, let it rest for a good 30 mins in the fridge. For the cream, mix […]

Frangipane and pear tarte


My first attempt at Frangipane and can you believe it, my first attempt at blind baking. I am very happy with the result and will for sure have another go at it very soon. For the tarte, I mixed 200g butter with 60 powdered sugar, added 1 egg and an […]

Moqueca


Moqueca, traditional Brasilian fish and shrimps dish: I marinated the firm white fish and shrimps in lime juice, chopped coriander, crushed garlic, salt and pepper. For the sauce, I fried onion, peppers and tomatoes before adding the marinated fishe/shrimps and coconut milk. Once mixed, I let it simmer while cooking rice as a side.

Grumolo with clementine sauce


Tonight’s starter was a green and red Grumolo salad with a clementine and sweet honey mustard sauce. The sweetness of the sauce is a perfect match to the slight bitter salad. The remaining sauce was great with today’s fresh bread. As a main, we had pasta with homemade pesto.

First lamb of the year


First lamb of the year: have made a point of choosing when I eat meat and where I buy it. I was lucky enough yesterday to get some lamb from a local farmer. I decided to cook it in the oven with some onions, garlic and carrots. As a side, I made some brussel sprouts as well as fried potatoes…not bad for my parents wedding anniversary ♥️ #blog #inmomskitchen #lamb #bratkartoffeln #rosenkohl #brusselssprouts #zurfeierdestages #slowcooking #lokaleinkaufen #localproducts #golocal #unterstützedeneinzelhandel #vomlokalenbauern

Rainy Sunday afternoon project: I first put them into hot water and let them boil for a few minutes…then peeled them…then dried them…then roasted them with salt…when is it apéro time?

Comfort food


I thought I was going to get sick…gladly I was just exhausted and needed to pull the plug for a day! This comfort food, inspired by Ottolenghi, was the right dish for my body and soul: very simple to make and soooo tasty! Orzo and shrimps cooked in a tomato […]

Gnocchi…..


What a nice surprise…sweet potato gnocchi, which I served with cavolo nero. The contrast in both taste and colour…a dish to repeat!! To start, I made a simple salad with brussels sprouts on a sweet honey mustard sauce and the Diana Henry inspired pommegranade and orange cake. A very nice […]

New Year…old traditions


There is no better way to start a cold and sunny day in the best city: Bürkliplatz market. Mother nature is producing less and less with the frosty nights…but just have a look at these beauties…

There is no New Year without…


For me, there is no New Year without this mouthwatering pizza a scarola: a receipe from nonna from bella Napoli… I can’t wait until it cools down a bit to be able to take my first slice… 😋 Here is to a healthy, inspiring and foody 2020 🥂

Colourful comfort food


Had to try out this simple and tasty comfort food dish myself after being inspired by #ottolenghi An absolute winner, which will for sure accompany me for a while
